2nd European Energy Conference     

For the second time, the European Science Foundation (Efs), the European Materials Research Society (Emrs) and the European Physical Society (Eps) pool their expertise to organise the European Energy Conference (E2C). The event will take place in Maastricht, on 17th -20th April 2012, with the aim of shaping the future role of energy in Europe.
The speakers include the former Secretary General of Nato Javier Solana, Steven Koonin from the Science and Technology Policy Institute-Usa, the Cea Chairman Bernard Bigot and James Barber from the Imperial College London. The structure of the conference is highly interactive and includes plenary sessions, thematic break-outs, round table discussions and policy outlooks.

The future European energy system has to be sustainable in terms of environmental and climate impact and also in terms of supply, industrial viability and societal acceptance. The challenges encompass many levels of complexity, from natural science research and engineering to social sciences, systems solution and actions and agreements at the global political level. For this reason this biennial European Energy Conference series, launched in 2010, intends to consolidate and communicate the vitally necessary synergy of scientific and technical competence with knowledge on environmental and social implications. The conference will provide participants with a view and a vision on how the future of energy in Europe could look like. It will be the forum to define the role of energy science and research in the transformation process towards the future sustainable European energy system.
